This is the first look at the next Samsung Windows Phone. Boasting 4G in the US, the Ativ Odyssey looks set to be a more pocket-friendly phone than the one it's already unveiled.
The first Windows 8 Phone from Samsung is the Evleaks, the Ativ Odyssey is much smaller., a giant 4.8-inch beast of a phone. Judging by this picture, shown off by
The leaked photo shows the phone plastered with branding for Verizon, the US phone network. There's still no word on whether it'll come over here, or which networks it will be available from.
The Odyssey also bears a 4G logo. That doesn't mean it'll be 4G over here, however. Verizon's 4G LTE network runs on the 800 and 1,900MHz frequencies. Here in the UK, EE, runs on 1,800MHz, while future networks will use 800 and 2,600MHz. Still, the is 4G here on EE, so fingers crossed.
Ativ is the rather unappealing name for Samsung's Windows devices, whether, , or phones with Windows Phone 8.
The Ativ S and Odyssey face stiff competition from the gorgeous Nokia Lumia range, as well as HTC's Windows Phones -- not to mention the iPhone and the vast range of Android phones to suit all pocket and wallet sizes.
Can Samsung be as successful with Windows Phone as it has been with Android? Is the Odyssey the next S3? Tell me your thoughts in the comments or on our Facebook page.
